This year's applicants stand to receive up to US$140,000 in funding, access to workshops and co-working spaces in Saudi Arabia, as well as opportunities to network with mentors and industry. With up to 60 startups expected to be a part of the initial accelerator program, further selected participants will later also be presented with a chance to pitch to a global judging panel of potential investors at the TAQADAM showcase in 2023.

Having supported over 130 startups since its inception, the TAQADAM Startup Accelerator is located at the King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST) and organized in partnership with Saudi British Bank (SABB).
